Operating Revenues

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, total operating revenues increased by 5.3% and 7.2%, respectively, compared to the same periods last year primarily due to the contribution from acquisitions, higher average monthly rents, and continuing strong occupancies. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, ancillary revenues, including parking, laundry and antenna income, rose by 5.4% and 8.9%, respectively, compared to the same periods last year, due to contributions from acquisitions and Management's continued focus on maximizing the revenue potential of its property portfolio.

CAPREIT's annualized net rental revenue run-rate as at September 30, 2014 increased to $487.2 million, up 5.2% from $463.0 million as at September 30, 2013 primarily due to acquisitions completed within the past twelve months and strong increases in average monthly rents. Net rental revenue run-rate net of dispositions for the twelve months ended September 30, 2014 was $473.0 million (2013 - $434.2 million).

Average monthly rents for residential suites increased by 2.1% to $1,080 and occupancy increased to 98.6% as at September 30, 2014 due to ongoing successful sales and marketing strategies and continued strength in the residential rental sector in the majority of CAPREIT's regional markets. For the Manufactured Housing Community ("MHC") land lease portfolio, average monthly rents decreased to $354 as at September 30, 2014, compared to $451 as at September 30, 2013, primarily due to the recent acquisitions in lower rent geographic regions. Occupancy for the MHC portfolio was 97.6% at September 30, 2014 compared to 99.3% the same period last year.

Average monthly rents for residential suites owned prior to September 30, 2013 increased as at September 30, 2014 to $1,081 from $1,055 as at September 30, 2013, an increase of 2.5% from the same period last year with occupancies rising to 98.6% from 98.5%.

(1) Percentage of suites turned over or renewed during the period based on the total number of residential suites (excluding co-ownerships) held at the end of the period.

The lower rate of growth in average monthly rents on lease renewals during 2014 compared to the prior year is primarily due to the lower mandated guideline increases for 2014 (Ontario - 0.8%, British Columbia - 2.2%), compared to the higher guideline increases in 2013 (Ontario - 2.5%, British Columbia - 3.8%), partially offset by increases due to above guideline increases ("AGI") achieved in Ontario. Increased portfolio diversification helped mitigate the lower guideline increases. Management continues to pursue AGI applications where it believes increases are supported by market conditions above the annual guideline to raise average monthly rents on lease renewals. For 2015, the permitted guideline increase in Ontario has been increased to 1.6%, and the permitted guideline increase in British Columbia has been increased to 2.5%.

Operating Expenses

Overall operating expenses as a percentage of operating revenues improved to 38.6% and 40.0%, respectively, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 compared to 39.3% and 41.1% for the same period last year, due to lower realty taxes, repairs and maintenance ("R&M"), and insurance costs partially offset by higher utility costs as a percentage of operating revenues.

Net Operating Income

In the three months ended September 30, 2014, NOI improved by $4.8 million or 6.5%, and the NOI margin increased to 61.4% from 60.7% for the same period last year. For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, NOI increased by $19.3 million or 9.3%, and the NOI margin increased to 60.0% compared to 58.9% for the same period last year. The increase in NOI margin for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 was primarily the result of higher operating revenues, lower realty taxes, R&M, and insurance costs partially offset by higher utility costs.

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, operating revenues for stabilized suites and sites increased 2.4% and 3.0% respectively, while operating expenses increased 0.4% and 0.3%, respectively, compared to the same periods last year.

Financial Strength

Management believes CAPREIT's strong balance sheet and liquidity position will enable it to continue to take advantage of acquisition and property capital investment opportunities over the long term.

CAPREIT is achieving its financing goals as demonstrated by the following key indicators:

  • Maintained a conservative ratio of total debt to gross book value of 46.80% as at September 30, 2014;
  • Debt service and interest coverage ratios for the quarter ended September 30, 2014 improved to 1.59 times and 2.72 times, respectively, compared to 1.55 times and 2.61 times, respectively, for the same period last year;
  • As at September 30, 2014, 95.8% (September 30, 2013 - 92.0%) of CAPREIT's mortgage portfolio was insured by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation ("CMHC"), excluding the mortgages on CAPREIT's MHC land lease sites, resulting in improved spreads on mortgages and overall lower interest costs than conventional mortgages.
  • The effective portfolio weighted average interest rate on mortgages has steadily declined to 3.66% as at September 30, 2014 from 3.79% as at September 30, 2013, resulting in significant potential interest rate savings in future years;
  • Management expects to raise between $600 million and $650 million in total mortgage renewals and refinancings in 2014 of which $563.8 million has been completed or committed as at November 11, 2014;
  • The weighted average term to maturity of the mortgage portfolio has improved from 5.8 years at September 30, 2013 to 6.5 years as at September 30, 2014;
  • As at September 30, 2014, CAPREIT has investment properties with a fair value of $213 million that are not encumbered by mortgages and secure only the Acquisition and Operating Facility. Unencumbered investment properties with a fair value over $54 million are expected to be financed reducing the total unencumbered investment properties to approximately $159 million;

Property Capital Investment Plan

During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, CAPREIT made property capital investments (excluding disposed properties, head office assets, tenant improvements and signage) of $95.1 million as compared to $101.5 million in the same period last year. For the full 2014 year, CAPREIT expects to complete property capital investments of approximately $165 million to $175 million, including approximately $87 million targeted at acquisitions completed since January 1, 2011 and approximately $22 million in high-efficiency boilers and other energy-saving initiatives.

Property capital investments include suite improvements, common areas and equipment, which generally tend to increase NOI more quickly. CAPREIT continues to invest in energy-saving initiatives, including boilers, energy-efficient lighting systems, and water-saving programs, which permit CAPREIT to mitigate potentially higher increases in utility and R&M costs and significantly improve overall portfolio NOI.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures

CAPREIT prepares and releases unaudited quarterly and audited consolidated annual financial statements prepared in accordance with IFRS. In this and other earnings releases and investor conference calls, as a complement to results provided in accordance with IFRS, CAPREIT also discloses and discusses certain non-IFRS financial measures, including Net Rental Revenue Run-Rate, NOI, FFO, NFFO and applicable per Unit amounts and payout ratios. These non-IFRS measures are further defined and discussed in the MD&A released on November 11, 2014, which should be read in conjunction with this press release. Since Net Rental Revenue Run-Rate, NOI, FFO and NFFO are not determined by IFRS, they may not be comparable to similar measures reported by other issuers. CAPREIT has presented such non-IFRS measures as Management believes these non-IFRS measures are relevant measures of the ability of CAPREIT to earn and distribute cash returns to Unitholders and to evaluate CAPREIT's performance. A reconciliation of Net Income and such non-IFRS measures including Adjusted Funds From Operations ("AFFO") is included in this press release. These non-IFRS measures should not be construed as alternatives to net income (loss) or cash flow from operating activities determined in accordance with IFRS as an indicator of CAPREIT's performance.
